Jayne has booked on to Hypnotherapy

Worse since her divorce 4 years ago

I’ve been pulling my hair out for about 20 years and eating the white root.

At the beginning I disguised the bald spots with Mane hair thickening spray which used to come off at night on my pillow, people used to ask why I had dark bed linen, then I visited several therapists, who just talked about anything shocking that had happened, but nothing springs to mind.

Since my divorce 4 years ago I wear a wig as it is now worse, as I am 40 this year I decided to look into it myself and discovered your website, and have now booked to see a Hypotherapist, cos this has ruled my life.

I am constantly buying clothes and make up to try and look more attractive ha ha, but without the confidence and wearing a wig is no fun, then I would set myself targets to prevent me doing it like not buying something special until I stopped.

Wish me luck with the Hypnotherapy, I’ll write again if it works.
